(a+b)(a-b)=a2-b2 The product of two binomials having a common term. (x+a)(x+b)=x2+(a+b)x+ab Legendre's Identity (x+y)2+(x-y)2=2(x2+y2) Two methods of synthetic division Horner's MethodRuffini's Method Algebraic Term formed by a numerical part and a literal part coefficient numerical part of an algebraic term variables with corresponding indices the literal part of an algebraic term Algebraic expression contains one or more algebraic terms monomial algebraic expression with one term polynomial algebraic expression with more than one term binomial has two algebraic terms trinomial algebraic expression with three terms relative degree degree with respect to a certain variable. it is equal to the index of that variable absolute degree it is the sum of the indices of all the variables in a term Relative degree of a polynomial it is the degree with respect to a certain variable. It is equal to the highest relative degree with respect to that variable of the terms in the polynomial. absolute degree of a polynomial it is the highest absolute degree of the terms in the polynomial. complete polynomial contains al the powers of that variable from zero to n .remove_background_ad { border: 1px solid #555555; padding: .75em; margin: .75em; background-color: #e7e7e7; } .rmbg_image { max-height: 80px; } AuthorAnonymous ID25497 Card SetMath Descriptionmath Updated2010-07-02T03:49:19Z Show Answers
